setting time on dash clock

i did a search but couldnt find the answer.

how do you set the time on the dashboard clock?? if i push the button long enough, the clock will restart, counting 1 by 1 and i dont know when it ends, i have seen it way past 24.... but i havent been able to set it, i did a search, and tried pushing, pulling, turning the button, but i couldnt do it.

also, is there a way to reset the lt/100 km (fuel economy) meter?? say, if im going to do a special trip and i want to begin counting on any given moment, can i do it??

thanx....

Turn the right knob after it is flashing, then push the button in to set the minute, then push setup again.

On the left side of the gauges push that black button in and hold it in for a couple of seconds it will reset.

thanx, i already held the button down for a few seconds and the clock begins counting the minutes and hours, but when it stops it is not set at the proper time... im talking about the clock on the dashboard, not the one on the stereo.

behind the steering wheel. how do you call that part?? sorry, english is my second language and im not sure how you call it. the clock (if it even is a clock, now i have my doubts) appears where the temp is displayed, if i remembr correctly, that display shows time, temp, orientation, fuel economy, and km to empty....

The time I think you are referring to is a timer. It is not the actual time of day like the radio displays. That's why it always starts over from 1. It will count seconds then minutes then into hours. It always counts while the Jeep is running.

You're probably looking at an hour meter for the engine...

Maybe incase you forgot your watch or smart phone you can keep time on the trail to see how long your engine has been running.

Kind of like a tractor, they get measured in hours on the engine.

^^This. Can be used in timing stages in rallies, etc. Or for more mundane purposes such as recording how much time is spent on a particular job.
